Contents 




Here we are in a totally different kind of life. 
Alone, looking for a place to fit, a place to belong. 
Maybe not with a crowd but with just one more. 



Grades. Sports. Elections. We all tried to make it one 
way, didn't we? You felt the overpowering ego when 
you made it, but the sickening emptiness of defeat 

lasted a little longer.

It's beside a cotton field this side of Indianola. 
Oh, you've never heard of it. Why, didn't you 
say Moorhead in the first place instead of Mississippi 
Delta? By any name, it's the same place. It's home 

to us. 



• Ever had to explain to a boy why he can't come in the 
lobby? Ever been bored enough to cover the halls 
with shaving cream? Even seen President Hall hand out 
diplomas for an hour and a half? If you have, 
then you've been to Moorhead. 



up at 8:00 and you've missed breakfast. You just barely 
make it to that JTXX 8:25 class, but of course it's 
raining. One more class, then it officially becomes 
the weekend. T.G.I.F. 






The place is changing. You can barely remember the 
trees that were once here where half -built structures 
now stand. In a jew years we won't know the place. 
But classes continue and if your lucky, you've got a 
date Thursday night. 











You're two minutes late and there is not a parking 
place anywhere. Maybe the cop won't notice you have 
the wrong sticker for the right parking place. Same 
classes: same kind of Friday, but Macon seemed a 
little different last night. "Maybe it was, I can't 
remember."

During the past year MDJC has 
shown noticeable growth and 
development. The physical 
appearance of the campus has 
changed with the addition of the 
lake, the new men's dormitory, 
the library-learning resource center 
and the fine Arts-Administration 
complex. President Hall is 
recognized as a capable leader 
because of his relationship with the 
total administration, faculty, 
and students. —

The Judiciary Council is 
composed of students selected by

At times an overwhelming 
amount of "Trojan Spirit" can 
lead to such things as a failure 
to sign in on time. These 
are the everyday problems the 
Judiciary Council is faced with.

the 1972 retrospect is dedicated to 

mr. charles p. foley^ jr. and 




dr. percy h. Stephen 




We, the RETROSPECT Staff of 1972, dedicate this yearbook 
to Mr. Charles P. Foley, Jr. and Dr. Percy H. Stephen. 
Both have been continuously interested in the development 
of MDJC students. Both have performed many deeds for 
the benefit of the student body at MDJC. The students of 
these men have gained insight and knowledge because of their 
associations with them. Both have been involved in 
e.xtra curricular activities that were designed to develop the 

student as a complete individual. 




Dr. Stephen has been recognized as the first MDJC faculty membei 
to earn a Doctorate. 






Jnder Mr. Foley's direction the Voc-Tecli has expanded, opening up 
lany new programs from which the MDJC student can choose. 



Mr. Charles Preston Foley, Jr., who has his BS and his Masters 

in Industrial Education from Mississippi State I' niversity, has been 

identified as the MDJC ocational-T e chnical Director for twenty years. 

Since he joined the staff, the Vocational-Technical Program has 

expanded from a department that offered three technical programs into 

a department that now offers nine technical programs and nine 

vocational programs and a full schedule of adult vocational training 

at night. He is also active in civic affairs and has served 

on the town board. Dr. Percy H. Stephen is an 

instructor who has given nineteen years of loyal service to this 

institution as head of the Business Department. He is the first member 

of the MDJC faculty to hold a Doctorate degree. Dr. Stephen has 

his BS from Delta State and Masters and Doctorate from the University 

of Southern Mississippi in Business Education.

sophomore 

A Sophomore is: 
. . . one who can put up with 
the Freshmen 
. . . someone who remembers 
the lake as a cottonfield 
... a person who fakes the 
Freshmen off 
. . . looking for a husband but 
not a wife 
. . . someone who remembers 
Miss Mclnnis 
. . . underwhelmed by 
Sophomore privileges 




There are many mixed emotions as students 
leave a class. There are happy faces because 
they are out for the day — sad because they have 
four straight classes on Monday, Wednesday, and 
Friday.

As the atmosphere of today's youth has taken on new lines 
and areas of dimension, so have the buildings which grace the 
MDJC campus. From the new concept of urban living to the 
even newer concepts of commmiity teaching, MDJC has 
become an example of the truly community college. 




The span of MDJC history between 1926 and 1972 
can be measured in more than mere years. For 
those 45 years have witnessed not only the increase 
in curricula and collegiate crowd but also a 
significant campus expansion. This is achievement.

The 1971-72 season got off to 
a slow start as the Mississippi 
Delta Trojans dropped their 
first game to Jones 23-7. 
The second game ended in a 
tie against Ittawamha, 14-14 
and the third game also 
ended in a loss as Co- Lin 
handed the Trojans a bitter 
35-7 defeat. However, their 
two defeats were from the 
south division of the state 
conference and the Trojans 
were still undefeated in the 
north. The long trip to 
Northeast seemed to give the 
"Delta boys" a chance to 
think and get their minds on 
what they were supposed to 
do. The thinking paid off as 
Delta won its first game of the 
season and the first of a 
six-game winning streak. 
Delta defeated the northern 
boys by a score of 26-14. 



1971-72 north mississippi football champs 




The next week the Trojans were hosted by 
long time rival, Holmes. Pride was at stake as 
the Trojans defeated the Bulldogs for the 
eleventh straight year by a score of 27-12. 
Northwest then invaded the Delta area and 
put up a hard fight to the very end of the 
game. The situation . . . seconds left, fourth 
down and several yards to go, and the score 
14-13, Northwest's favor. The crowd was 
screaming GO, GO, GO, as Coach Randall 
sent in place kicker, Tom Griffing. A hush fell 
over the Trojan Field as the two teams lined 
up against each other. The snap was good, 
the kick went up and traveled 37 yards to split 
the goal post. Griffing's kick gave the Trojans 
a 16-14 win and boosted them into second 
place in the north division. 
Next came Homecoming. The Trojans were to 
play host to the Southwest Bears from 
Summit. Alumni came from all over the Delta 
and helped create the excitement that comes 
with every Homecoming. After a fun-packed 
day, the alumni and students watched MDJC 
defeat the Bears in a "fair" game, 21-0. 
With the four-game winning streak Delta had, 
it would only seem natural that the games 
should get easier, but, not so. Delta had three 
games left and all of them had to be won. 

The teams left to be played were East 
Mississippi, defending North champs East 
Central, and the nation's number one junior 
College t£am. Gulf Coast. 
Delta traveled to Scooba, Mississippi, to play 
"mudball" with the East Mississippi Lions. 
Delta got two quick touchdowns in the first 
quarter as East got one. That is the way it 
stayed the rest of the night. In the second 
quarter the rain fell and so did every ball carry 
as the traction was very slim. 
Then came the big test. The "Delta boys" 
visited the small town of Decatur to meet East 
Central for the North Mississippi 
Championship. The game was long and 
exciting. With four minutes remaining. East 
Central was ahead by a score of 9-7. With 
fourth down and long yardage, East Central 
kicked to the Trojans. Joey Greco took the 
punt around midfield and with key blocks 
from the determined Trojans, he took the ball 
untouched into the endzone. The defense 





held as Central gave final effort and Delta 
went home with the north division title. 
Two weeks later, Delta had its chance at the 
State Championship. The Trojans faced Gulf 
Coast, the number one junior college team in 
the nation. Both teams were unable to muster 
any offense in the first half and Delta went to 
the dressing room with a very slim 7-6 margin 
oi'er the Bulldogs. The second half was 
winewhat different as the "South dogs" held 
the Trojans to one touchdown and scored 
three for themselves. The Bulldogs took the 
State Chamfnonshif) by a score of 27-14. 
Even thouoh they lost the State Championship 
hid. the MDJC Trojans are still the North 
State Cliamfuonship team, a well deserve 
title. (The whole school got the day off on 
I'riday before the State Championship game). 



MISSIS 






The coaching staff of the MDJC 
Trojans was honored this year as 
they received the "Coaching Staff of 
the Year" award.

combination of mistakes, tears, worry, insanity, lots 
of laughter, redrawn layouts, lost pictures, 
darkroom sessions , and a few dreams until the final 
deadline. This year the book took on a different 
look with changes in the traditional features 
section, a larger book, new sculptured layouts and 
an effort was made to change the book from a 
stereotyped picture book to a journalistic project.

honored it with a plaque, 
naming it "Yard of the

Jones and Mr. Brown.

a last word by the editor 



The 1972 RETROSPECT was created and written by journalism 0111 
and 0121. We are responsible for all comments made in this publication. 

This edition of the Retrospect was printed by Benson Printing 
Company, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee. The first sixteen pages are 
printed on Saxony Enamel and color process appears on pages 2, 6, 10, 
and 14. Four division units of four pages each are printed in black on 
75 lb. gray text. The remainder of the book is printed on Warner's 
Dull Enamel. Copy type was printed in 24 pt. Bodoni Bold Italic for 
" heads, 12/ 14 Roman Italics for writeups on first sixteen pages, 

10/12 Roman Italics for rest of the writeups, 8/9 Roman for captions 
and identifications. More work goes into a yearbook than most of us 
realize. To Jon Shirley our student photographer and to Leslie Kent 
who bailed us out of many a tight spot, special thanks. Mr. Lamb is 
responsible for almost all the pictures in the Achievements Section as 
well as formal and informal sports & activities pictures. And thanks to 
David Rushing for his candid shot. The cover is an original design by 
Chuck Abraham and I am grateful to him for his contribution to 
' - individuality of the book. And most of all to the staff itself for their 
many hours of hard work which have gone unnoticed. Lastly to the 
whole student body and faculty for their patience and cooperation.
